Butterfly Kisses – USA, 2018

‘2004  2015 Soon’

Butterfly Kisses is a 2018 American horror mockumentary feature film written and directed by Erik Kristopher Myers. The Four-Fingered Films production stars Gavin York, Alyssa Dalgleish and Consuelo M. Edwards.


Gain York, a filmmaker, discovers a box of video tapes marked ‘Don’t watch’ depicting two students’ disturbing film project featuring a local horror legend, The Peeping Tom or The Blink Man. As he sets out to prove this story is real and release it as a work of his own, he loses himself and the film crew following him into his project…


The way Gavin’s life slowly crumbles as he digs deeper in to the legend becomes an unusual testament to the madness and self-destruction that can ensue with obsession […] Erik Kristopher Myer’s Butterfly Kisses is a strong horror film and one you should seek out if you want something a different with your found footage horror.” Felix Vasquez, Cinema Crazed

“If you’re looking for a found footage flick that goes a tad against the grain and delivers a great bit of mythology and a convincing sense of reality, then give Butterfly Kisses a go; it won’t necessarily scare the pants off from ya, but it definitely will give you some good chills!” Horror Fuel

” …the onscreen scares in Butterfly Kisses are minimal, but the film does succeed at inducing a general feeling of apprehension. Seeing the tapes of Sophia and Feldman talking about their experiences with Peeping Tom causes your imagination to run wild and results in psychological terror that is much scarier than any jump scare.” Michelle Swope, Nightmarish Conjurings

“It takes a lot to scare me nowadays and while this came across as more mysterious than anything there were a few moments that worked on me effectively. Regardless of this the way it has been put together is nothing short of wonderful with a feeling of descending into an inescapable nightmare slowly building up over the 90 minute run time.” Daniel Simmonds, The Rotting Zombie

“There were strong performances by all involved but kudos to Gavin York for sure. You’ll love him, you’ll hate him, you’ll almost feel sorry for him but nah… I think you’ll enjoy the ghost hunters as well. And Erik Kristopher Myers seemed just as comfortable in front of the camera so double kudos to him.” DC Harrison, Screamfix

“When the focus shifts from the original footage to the descent and increasing passion of Gavin and the concerns of those around him, it becomes a powerful study of obsession rather than folklore with numerous surprising revelations. If you think the subgenre is done and finished, Butterfly Kisses might change your mind…” Martin Unsworth, Starburst


Butterfly Kisses was released in the US on October 23, 2018, on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD via Gravitas Ventures.


Not to be confused with a 2017 British drama film of the same name directed by Rafael Kapelinski.
